What’s This?

LinkedIn is a business-oriented service used for professional networking, and is the world’s largest professional network with 300 million members in over 200 countries and territories around the globe. You can use LinkedIn like a live networking event and introduce yourself to others, make new friends, and start helping more people connect. And by accepting invitations to others who add you, you expand your network which helps create more opportunities.

Import LinkedIn Connections to Facebook

As we mentioned in a previous post, LinkedIn has great targeting capabilities on their advertising platform, including the ability to reach users by the groups they are members of. Users that join groups tend to be more active on LinkedIn, meaning that if you’re targeting 100,000 group members you will likely reach more people than by targeting 100,000 people by title, seniority, location, etc. Advertisers can always further qualify group targeting by adding demographic information on top of it.

Both the LinkedIn and Facebook social networking sites permit you to create a network of contacts comprised of your fellow Facebook and LinkedIn users. And if you’re interested in inviting your LinkedIn connections to “Like” your Facebook page, there is a solution.

Although neither Facebook or Linkedin allows users to directly export connections from LinkedIn to Facebook, according to digital marketing expert and web designer Bally Uppal, you can invite your LinkedIn connections to “Like” your Facebook page. With LinkedIn’s export feature, you can export your LinkedIn contacts as an Excel Supported CSV file and import the file to Facebook.
